An amazing experience from the moment we got there until the moment we left. I'll start with the negative stuff. You would have to agree that the resort requires updating, particularly the tennis court. That's out of the way now, on to the positives. The resort overlooks the beautiful Charges River which you never get bored of looking over. At... More

The view through 30 foot high glass walls is breathtaking, the pool is large with a swim up bar. The food is very good in few different restaurants. the rooms are nice too with balconies and hammocks looking at the mountains/jungle. The staff is very helpful and courteous.

Once or twice every year, for the past seven years, I have stayed at this hotel for a couple of days each time I have had visitors. I love the spectacular and relaxing setting; but regretfully, more and more each year, I notice the decline of this magnificent place. Our rooms this year smelled, one of mold and the other... More

We booked this location the day before we stayed there, having heard it was not too far from the city and in the rain forest. Since it was the low season, we had no problems getting a room and there weren't too many people there. The room was ready when we arrived and had a wonderful view of the river... More

Hello, I stayed at the resort in July 2014. The property is a nice property and it seems really good for families. I am more of an adventure traveler so it really wasn't for me, but there was nothing wrong with the property. The staff was very friendly and helped me with all my requests.

Relaxing stay for 3 days. We got a room with very nice views on the Chagres river. The swimming pools were nice. The restaurants too. The staff friendly and helpful. The excursions they offer are quite expensive though. Try to stay in a room on the upper floors. The romos farther from the swimming pools seemed to be more quite.... More

We stayed at the Gamboa in March of 2014. We had a fantastic room that had a spiral staircase to an additional bedroom upstairs with 2 twin beds - we did not know about the extra sleeping area and it was not needed but we had floor to ceiling windows that were just amazing. Also, a small outside balcony with... More

Stayed here with my seven year old son in May 2014. It was so peaceful. The room was nice and the view was great. I don't think any of the rooms have a bad view. It was relaxing rocking on the hammock on the balcony. The tours were nice. Food was good. Nothing to complain about. Would definitely stay again.

I had the pleasure of staying five days at this property as part of a staff conference. The rooms manage to convey the feel of being in a well-appointed jungle villa even though you are in a multistory hotel. Taking heed of previous reviews, I requested a room on the top floor of the hotel and was very pleased with... More

Really hard to write a review on this hotel. I really want to love this place but it was so frustrating that I cannot. Good Location. Can hike around the grounds and beyond to see wildlife. The included night tour was short (30 minutes) but fun and we say sloths and capybaras. During the included afternoon hike we saw white-faced... More
